Sneak Peek at What You Can Get With Shop Your Way RewardsPosted: November 25, 2015
This is going to be a long post but there are lots of pictures so that should help keep your attention. I wanted to show you a little bit about how I find free money around the holidays and all year round as well. Shop Your Way Rewards is a great program run through Sears and Kmart. Signing up to be a member is free.
In order, to see if you have any surprise points you just sign into your Shop Your Way account and check under Rewards and then Surprise Points. In there it will let you know how many points you have (For example $10 off $10 or $15 off $75), it will also let you know which store you can use them at, and which departments you can redeem them in. They will often send you an email or a text letting you know if you have received any surprise points. They usually come on a Thursday so you could make a habit of checking your account at least once a week. The points you receive usually have one week until they expire.
In order to redeem them, make sure you are signed into your account for the store you are shopping at Sears or Kmart and then make sure the amount is more then the amount of points. Sometimes it works if the amount is less but if it is not working that might be why. And be careful that you are not using them on clearance if that is excluded or anything else excluded and you should be good to go. You can use them in-store (just let the cashier know you want to use them) or will have to know your pin number in order to use them. Mine was my zipcode. Or you can order online and either get Free Store Pick-up to avoid shipping fees or the item might be eligible for Free Shipping through Shop Your Way Max (which you are automatically signed up for when you open an account). I have been a member for several years now and even though there supposed to be a yearly membership fee, for Shop Your Way MAX, they continue to waive that for free and renewing my membership.
Sometimes I do not get very good offers for a long time with surprise points but sometimes when it rains it pours. Here are pictures and details of all the things I have been able to get for practically free in the past month.
I bought 3 packs of the wide mouth lids (reg. $3.49 each) and 1 pack of the wide mouth plastic storage caps (reg. $3.99). And after using surprise points, I only spent $1.52 out of pocket.
I also was able to pick up two pairs of Christmas pjs for a little over $4 out of pocket after using surprise points. The Cinderella pjs were on sal e for $11.99 (reg. 19.99) and the footed sleeper was on sale for $6.99 (reg. $9.99).
My six year old also needed more jeans for school. And they were on sale for $13.99 (reg. $16.99), right now they are member price for only $9.99. With my surprise points, I paid NOTHING out of pocket.
As for the pillows, I am redecorating my front room and wanted some new pillows to tie in with my new curtains. And with points, I was able to get these pillows for yet again, NOTHING out of pocket.
I have a new baby on the way and with points I was able to pay NOTHING out of pocket for a few items for when my little boy boy arrives.
I was able to snag this Crockpot (and it is HUGE) for a little under $9 with a sale and ended up getting around $10 back in points to use later. And this comforter set for our Queen size bed came to under $4 out of pocket with surprise points.
And about a month ago, there was a coupon for $10 off $25 available (NO LONGER AVAILABLE) for signing up for Kmart emails and I was able to use it and some other points to get 25 soaps for just $13.25 out of pocket. They ended up being 53 cents each and will make great Christmas gifts for neighbors and friends.
So there you have it, I just couldn’t not share. I hope you can sign up too and stretch your Christmas budget a little further this year!
